It's Monday after the weekend that was. Plenty of were most likely doing the same thing as me over the weekend: playing a helluva lot of video games. But for the folks lucky enough to pick up a PlayStation 4 — what are your thoughts? How are you enjoying the console so far?
You can read my more extensive thoughts on the console here but, just generally, I am a fan. I like the slick, super accessible UI. I love the design and I love the controller. The PS4 is seriously lacking compared to the Xbox One in terms of its apps and its potential as a Media Center (no HDMI-in) but when it comes to 3rd party games I enjoy the feeling that I'm playing the definitive version of that game. That's the feeling I'm currently getting when playing, say, Assassin's Creed IV on the PS4.
So yeah, the games are slim pickings, especially when it comes to console exclusive 'AAA' titles, but I've been having a blast with Resogun and the remastered version of Flower. Most of my time, however (read: 90% of my time), has been spent with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, which really does feel quite spectacular on the PS4.
All up, I'm really liking the PlayStation 4 so far*.
*Almost as much as I'm enjoying my Wii U now that Super Mario 3D World has come out!
